Dr. Andrew Abraham
Dr. Andrew Abraham is an integrative medicine physician and the CEO and founder of Orgain. While fighting an aggressive form of tissue cancer as a teenager, he began turning to nutrition as a first line of defense, blending shakes at home using only all-natural, food-based ingredients to replace the low-quality, conventional nutritional shakes given to him by his doctors. Years later, while seeing patients as a practicing physician, Dr. Abraham realized the quality of conventional nutritional shakes had barely improved since his diagnosis, which inspired him to found Orgain in 2009. In addition to leading Orgain, he supports several early-stage, high-growth food and beverage companies as an investor and advisor.
